Preparations are underway for the seventh annual Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration, which will take place on a new date: Sept. 4-5!  This free Labor Day weekend event is an entertaining educational experience that the whole family will enjoy!  It features canoe races, a traditional salmon bake dinner, cultural exhibits and demonstrations, a Native American market place, children’s activities and an evening concert with Joanne Shenandoah.

Linked to the traditional observance marking the return of the salmon, The Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration began as a means of sharing the heritage, culture and traditions of the Coquille Indian Tribe and other Pacific Northwest Tribes with residents and visitors to Oregon’s Bay Area. Now in its seventh year, the event attracts Native American artisans and musicians from throughout the Western United States and Canada.

Known for its traditional salmon bake dinner where fresh salmon is prepared in the time-honored Coquille open-pit manner, the Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration offers visitors the opportunity to experience Native American culture, art, food and music. The celebration, which runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, features daily performances by Native American storytellers, drummers, flutists and dancers; a marketplace offering traditional wares and foods; a bay-front canoe exhibit and races; traditional games and activities for children, plus a variety of cultural demonstrations and educational exhibits.

She is a Wolf Clan member of the Iroquois Confederacy-Oneida Nation. Shenandoah has 15 recordings and her music is on over 40 compilations.

Her original compositions, combined with a striking voice enable her to embellish the ancient songs of the Iroquois using a blend of traditional and contemporary instrumentation.  Ms. Shenandoah’s music reflects the indigenous philosophy and culture, which continues to have a profound effect on the world today. From traditional chants to contemporary ballads about Native ways, her music has been described as an emotional experience, a “Native American Trance”. Ms. Shenandoah will perform at 7:30 p.m. in the casino’s Salmon Room.

Tickets for Ms. Shenandoah’s Saturday night concert and the popular Salmon Bake dinner, which will be served from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday are now on sale at Ko-Kwel Gifts inside The Mill Casino • Hotel.

He’s brought his high energy, politically incorrect (or PC-corporate, when entertaining at private functions) humor to all of the United States and Canada.  Mike just finished a seven-month run at Harrah’s casino as the Comedy Star of “Rhinestone Cowgirls” and “Showgirls” which was the basis of the A&E featured series “Vegas Showgirls “Nearly Famous”. Fans have described Mike as a cross between Don Rickles and Jonathan Winters…a fact that Mike cherishes, as he is a big fan of both!  Mike may not be famous yet, but make no mistake; he is definitely one of the most consistently funny comics to come out of the Pacific Northwest in the last 20 years. His act is guaranteed fun!
